    Re: The Official LL "Where Did My Butt Go?" Thread

    Hey, mine isn't a pretty number for a girl only 5'2", I just claim i'm very dense ;)

    I ran into the same thing last spring when I was training for the 1/2 (before, you know, i broke).  I was at my heaviest ever even though I was running about 20-25 miles a week, and it took breaking my leg to drop 10lbs. I think part of it was justifying a higher carb intake because of the cardio I was getting. I was definitely exercising a ton, and I know my body composition changed in a favorable direction towards more muscle, but still, its disheartening to work that hard and see the scale move UP!

    Here is my week 14 update: 

    Goal: -20 from starting date
    Starting date: 08/27/2011
    Goal date: 10 by Thanksgiving - then just hang on through the holidays
    Pounds lost this week: + .6
    Total lost: 7.9
    Left to go: 12.1
    Total lost since August 2011: 7.9

    I missed my week 13 weigh in because of travel for Thanksgiving but it was just as well. I'm sure I was heavier than I am now which is +.6 from 2 weeks ago. Anyway, I'm hanging in there and am goimg to try to lose during these holiday weeks but my first week recording a gain is not a good omen.

    Lily, you can join this thread without publishing your weight. I know I haven't, just my loss/gains.

    Goal - 30 lbs
    Start date - 2/22/11
    Goal Date - 4/1/2012
    Pounds lost this week +.2
    Left to go - 23.8
    Total lost since 2/22/11 - 6.2 lbs

    This is, what, up 4 weeks in a row?  Very discouraging, especially since I started taking a boot camp class 3 weeks ago.  It's way too soon for it to be muscle weight.  Starting to track points again.  Fingers crossed (and mouth closed?!?).

    Welcome back!  And chopsticks are a dieters best friend - I'm so clumsy with them, I slow down and get fuller faster!!

    Good jobLaughing

    Does anyone have an accurate, small interval scale they recommend? I have one I bought at CVS a few years ago, and 1) I don't like that it counts in 1/2 lbs, I'd rather smaller decimals to watch my fluctuation day to day and 2) I just don't think it's super accurate.

    I know some of you folks are measuring in .2's, are these digital scales or the 'real' weighted ones at the gym?

    Digital - got one in Bed Bath and Beyond pretty reasonable ($20?) And then there's the ever present coupons that they are determined to paper the earth with!

    Neener - please come back!!  We need your comical updates and dancing bananas and treadmill of shames!!! 

    The holidays are tough for everyone but we'll make it through it one way or the other. 

    CHC - I'd starve if I had only chopsticks!

    NattyGin - Same as JTB, I got mine for about $20 at BB&B and it's a digital and pretty accurate.

    Happy holidays everyone!!

    ***UPDATE TIME!!***

    Hi kids! I have not been able to truly update since the weekend we turned the clocks back.

    It ain't been pretty.

    To borrow from S9V:  OH LAWD.

    Ahem.

    Anyhow...let's get back to some semblance of normal lunacy, shall we?

    Today's Dancing Banana goes to Mr. Corvin with another -4 gone!  Sweet!

    I'm sexy and I know it!




    I'm giving the Banana o' Determination to Lily- this week, who not only had a -2.5, but is ramping up her walking marathons to a running schedule, where she will join the lovely sm1231, Icey, and the other successful C25K'ers!

    I like to move it move it!




    Other fantastic losers this week include Wickey with a -1.  I think that's it.  Did I miss anyone?  Good job, Wicks!

     
    CHC is holding steady this week, but is celebrating 17 gone after a year of being an awesome loser!

    Calico and luna-llena are both up fractions of pounds.  We don't count those.  Drink some more water and fiber up, people :)

    Our pals JTB and NattyGing are on the Treadmill of Shame, but we're pretty sure this is just a one week thing.  Go get em' kids!

     As for me....umm...I have been struggling mightily with my energy level and having fits of depression-like symptoms due to lack of light.  I have gained...wait for it...EIGHT FREAKING POUNDS since the end of October.  Frustration does not even begin to cover it.  Not being able to access this thread regularly is not helping with the mindset.

    My official numbers below:

    Goal: -50 from starting date
    Starting date: 08/05/2010
    Goal date: really just want to be healthy
    Pounds lost since last checkin: +8
    Total lost: 8
    Left to go: 42
    Total lost since August 2007: 58

    Jneen!!!
    Welcome back and boy do I hear you about that lack of light thing - I'm with you on that one kiddo!

    And don't forget, the average weight gain between Thanksgiving and New Year's is 10 lbs - so you're actually not doing as badly as you think!

    Long distance hugs and cheers to all

    Goal - 30 lbs

    Goal Date - 4/1/2012
    Pounds lost this week .4
    Left to go - 23.4

    Yay Jneen!  Thanks for the update!  Glad you're back, but also half-glad that you missed my big gain a few weeks ago.  Embarassed  Obviously I know what I'm doing wrong, yet I keep doing it.  Self-sabotage . . . not pretty.
